Every year at Wikimania I try to facilitate a discussion about
the future of the conference. This year, I'd like to expand that
discussion to focus on Wikimedia events in general. This will
be the seventh annual global conference of Wikimedians, and
Wikimania has gained a certain maturity. This year also marked
the highly successful Wikipedia 10 events all across the globe.
What is the future of events in our community, what role can
in-person events play in community-building and recruitment,
and what should be the model be for events going forward?
